Pamela was excited to be back at work after having spent many years taking care of her little ones who were now growing up with great poise. Twins, Zack and Jennifer were beautiful while talented youngsters in their infancy and now going to a local primary school.

As Pam’s responsibilities from tasks to pressure from her boss had escalated, she felt the need to get up early before the children awoke and meditate on weekdays. The YouTube sounds of chirping birds, burbles from waterfalls gently trickling into the stream, and soft relaxing Zen music were captivating. Chills ran through her mind and body. She was delighted by such tranquility in her awaking and preparatory experiences. Weekends were for intimate family time!


Nothing quite matched her morning ritual whereby she could step away from the busy lifestyle of rushing around all day to get the children ready for school, take them there, and then go to the city of Manchester to work. Her days were always such a rush while bustling fulltime job took up most of her time.


She toggled over in her mind if she should stay in employment or freelance from home. The income wouldn’t be as good, but at least she would have more freedom, and be able to pick up the kids instead of having to rely on other family members. If she chose self-employed work, the extra free-time obtained could be shared with her loved ones to fulfill her desire for quality family time.


The bond shared collectively would enhance their relationships, and bring them closer together. Childhood is the most important years to teach offspring values, and a deeper understanding to prepare them for the future. Pam was well aware that as a mother she could not neglect her darlings.
